We begin by thanking and praising Allah.
He is the most entitled of our gratitude and our praise the Most High the Most Merciful.
We ask Allah for guidance We ask Allah for protection We ask Allah for forgiveness.
we beseech Allah to shower our beloved messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with compliments and salutations and upon his family and upon his companions, and upon all of those who follow His perfect tradition, his Sunnah until the end of time.
Allahu subhana wa tada commands us in the Quran to have Taqwa of him.
The definitions of taqwa are many. The simplest understanding is to make sure that we are always in a state of being aware of Allah subhanho wa Taala being watchful over us. And if we truly internalize that, then we would make sure that the Angel of Death does not come upon us except that we are either obeying Allah and what he commanded. or staying away from that which he prohibited. That is taqwa.
As to what follows the past couple of months, we have been speaking about the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
we understood in the beginning of the year, how important and necessary it is for us to have love with the Messenger of Allah. Why it is so logical and rational.
And we can only have nothing but immense amounts of love for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We followed that up by talking a little bit about what are his rights upon us. If the Messenger of Allah is so important and integral to our lives, and he is such an honorable and noble person in our site, then that means that he has certain rights. And we talked about complete belief in the Messenger of Allah as a prophet and messenger.
We talked about following and obeying the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we left off at talking about to do who FEMA,
accepting and believing the Messenger of Allah in that which he has relayed to us from Allah, that which he has stated, acceptance and belief and putting that as a priority before any other sources of information that we get from other human beings.
to transition from that point, how about we look at someone who embodied that write of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did full tell us the acceptance and belief in what the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
and as we know him so well by this nickname, and how appropriate this nickname is to him and how relevant it is to this right of the Messenger of Allah.
The companion Abubakar, acidic.
So many of us might not even know what his actual name was, as a matter of fact, there is some debate amongst the historians, what was his name?
But we would never argue that he has been given this lockup this nickname of elsley deal.
Nobody would come and contest that. No historian or scholar would ever disagree that that nickname was given to him.
Not only by the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam and as he was known amongst the companions, and as the centuries of Muslims referred to him, but by Allah subhanho wa Taala in an insult
azumah Allah Allah subhana wa tada says, what led to the acidity while sadaqa v?
Allah subhana wa tada described the Messenger of Allah as being that messenger of truth who came with nothing but truth.
And there was the one that accepted and believed that truth as he received it from the Messenger of Allah. That's why he was named elsley deal.
Why is it important for us to pause and talk about the, this particular individual in this companion to begin with?
As we said, we've been going through this theme of loving the Messenger of Allah and having closeness to Allah, his Allah how to send them. One of the best ways to have love for this little law he has a little longer and he was lm is to grow in our love of his companions of his Sahaba. To love the Sahaba in essence is a means in a way of loving Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And if you truly love it, or somebody else is in them, that will undoubtedly lead to loving his Sahaba.
The two are closely related, any discussion or any pause or any reflection that we take
to enjoy hearing and extracting lessons from the lives of these noble men and women, the Sahaba but also by Sai Salaam, is a means of going closer to the prophet SAW Selim himself and to increasing in our love and wonder and belief in him under his Salatu was Salam. So how did he get this nickname? We talked about the Messenger of Allah His right is that he be trusted and accepted and believed in what he said. And here we have someone who trusted and believed the Messenger of Allah so much that that became his nickname. There is a famous event which took place we refer to as salam o el mera Lodge. It's a beautiful story in the life of the Messenger of Allah, perhaps, in the future, we can
dedicate an entire gathering for that story alone. But in short, in summary, this was a miraculous events that happened in the life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, in which he was transported by Allah subhanho wa Taala. To Bay to the Methodists to Jerusalem.
May Allah subhanaw taala read it, of oppression.
And then Allah subhanaw taala elevated him and Rose him up above the seven heavens and beyond a point that no other creation had gone, in which Allah subhanaw taala communicated to him directly.
All of that took place in one night.
miraculous, something that is beyond the capabilities of any average human being or even above average human being. This is beyond the human capability. It is from the morning is that when those sort of law is the law, they were settled on, it experienced this event, he relayed this story to his own to his people.
And how do you think they responded, they already had a track record of abusing and claiming that he was a liar and a saucer and someone mentally unstable and all of these other false and baseless claims that they threw at him and he hustled out to a center. So yet again, as was their pattern of behavior. They said, what kind of a joke is this? What kind of mockery is this? You're telling us that you took a trip, which takes us on average two months to get to beat him up this unit? All of that and round trip and above the heavens and in one night? Who are you trying to fool here?
So they thought they could take advantage of this. They thought, Okay, you know what, he's come up with something so ludicrous. This will definitely bring down his message in his small community of followers. So they went to his closest ally, and companion, beloved companion, Abubakar in a mocking tone. They said, Did you hear what your friend has been claiming?
Can you believe what he said that he did this and he did that?
in hopes that they would break his faith in hopes that they would wedge between Abubakar on the profit side SLM and crumble this bond of community and a man that they had
put Abubakar in his wisdom and his strength. He gave that right to law school of law. Tell Steve Oh, who FEMA hobo Hakuna vs. Allah hustler he gave rasulillah that right so when they came in, they told him and they painted this picture. He said in Bala half of God sadhak End of story. Get out of my way.
If he said it
He's telling the truth.
That's all Abu Bakar had to say in that moment. What a statement of strength what a statement of a man. What a declaration of love and respect for the sort of law who sort of longer I do sell him. If he said it. He's telling the truth. I've believed him in far greater than this. I believed him in that he is a recipient of way of revelation from Allah subhanaw taala as an after believing that everything else is easy, simple.
We believe in Allah. La your Zoo Shay. Nothing is beyond the control. Nothing is beyond Allah subhana wa Tada. Allah cliche in Kadir, but a haka be cliche in Illa. Allah describes himself to us in the Quran in so many places.
We don't put limitations on what Allah subhanho wa Taala can do.
And he chose this messenger.
And if he allowed this messenger to accomplish such miraculous feats, then we believe the messenger in what he stated in Allah farrakhan sada in his wisdom, he put a condition conditional statement Joomla sharqiya in his wisdom, because he doesn't trust these disbelievers that are coming to him with all kinds of false
pieces of information. And from here Abubakar teaches us to never let our emotions get ahead of us. You think we love us a lot more than I will but God loved him.
That love that Abubakar had, it still did not get in the way of his wisdom. If he said it, he is telling the truth. In this wise statement.
He combined between the wisdom of verifying information and not just believing any thing that comes to us. And from that we have the science of Hadeeth.
And he combined that with the beauty and the loyalty and the commitment and the rite of passage I set him to be believed in that which he states.
A lot of times, people are told of a narration of a statement of a hadith of a son of the prophet SAW Selim. And they respond to it with belittlement.
That's not appropriate. That's not giving it a sort of love this rite of passage to FEMA. Oh, it's not in the Quran. So I don't believe that.
For that so many times, our beloved messenger, so you do have the will and mid his salatu salam informed us of xy and z. It's not in the Quran, I don't believe it.
Is it not in the Quran? Wa Taku rasuluh for Hulu, whatever the messenger gives you accepted, that's not in the Quran.
There is a principle that is an axiom. Through that we understand how to deal with the statements and the traditions that we get from our beloved messenger Allah Salatu. Salam, this logic or or what they call logic, it's really illogical. But this rational excuse of if it's not in the Quran, verbatim, I'm not interested in accepting that in and of itself is the height of disrespect to Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.
What was he just some individual who was given the miracle of the Quran and then just put the hands up, okay, go ahead, take the Koran do with it what you want.
That's not appropriate to do FEMA about a worker taught us beautifully in that moment of strength, how to handle information that we get from law sort of lies a lot earlier he was
you know, he was someone that we could spend so much time praising and talking about his status. He was the first of the people to believe and also law historicity of the first individuals to accept Islam, and believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Not only that,
not only did he hasten
to join the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a man.
But he also was effective in relating that message to others. You might hear of these group of Sahaba they're called Allah, Allah, Allah mova shall have been agenda. There is a group of Sahaba they are 10 in number that when you survey the statements of the prophets I sell and we find him guaranteeing paradise for them.
Meaning they are a lofty and special group amongst the community of the Sahaba.
They are their place in Jenna has been guaranteed for them. five of those accepted Islam through the efforts of Darrow of Abu Bakr Siddiq
obey the law.
The one who gave them the message of Islam the message of rasa lamb, with wisdom and with beauty and with gentleness and with mercy and in an effective and strategic and wise manner, such that they accepted and they didn't just accept, but they rose to the status of nobility and of Eman and of strength that the prophets of alarm ursuline told us how they're placed in June as guaranteed for them. How effective of a color of overkill also declared the Allahu taala and who was
extremely passionate, extremely generous. Sebastian it'll he'll never hesitate to move forward to accomplish something good.
On one occasion, Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wa sallam in the early hours of the day, sat with his companions
and he asked them
men men come to us by Julio Messiah, a man who amongst you greeted this day today as someone fasting doing song for Allah Abubakar Anya Rasul Allah. So abubaker said, I have done so messenger of Allah, I'm fasting today I began this day fasting.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said many Tibetan Kumu Yama jenessa.
Who amongst you has began this day by following a janazah a funeral procession which is of the rights of a believer upon the community members of Oba called Allahu taala. And who said any other sort of law, I have done so on messenger of Allah.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said men and women Komiyama miskeen and who amongst you, today has fed someone who is hungry and in need of boubakeur yet against any sort of law.
Fourth, the Messenger of Allah said man Adam in kumal, Yama Maria one who today has heard of someone ill sick in pain, suffering, and went out of their way to visit them to bring some happiness into their day and heart of robocall said NAR Rasul Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said image tema, when these four things gather, in one day of a believer, Jen will be for this believer.
Baba cuddle the Allahu Allah and who teaches us to hasten towards good. All of this happened in the early parts of the day.
That requires effort
that requires diligence. He saw these opportunities. And what's beautiful about these four acts of worship is they are not only individual acts of worship, but they are also acts of service to others.
And fasting is the righteousness between him and Allah. It's a beautiful act of worship, but him visiting a sick person and him feeding someone needy and him following agenda. All of that is giving rights to others. abubaker is teaching us that we must combine between individual acts of worship and be in service in freedom to the Hulk to the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala giving others their rights. And of course he was effective at doing that because he began by giving Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his right. On one occasion there was a quarrel between some of the Sahaba Abubakar the prophet SAW Selim jumped in and said, I was sent as a messenger for Highland
national condemned Wakanda Abu Bakr in so duct, I was sent as a messenger. So many people responded by saying You are a liar, Abubakar shined
amongst all of those people, because he said you are telling the truth. Or messenger of Allah. Allahu Tada. And who, by any celebrity edge, Marian, may Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with him and with all of the companions and May Allah inspire us to follow the example of Abu Bakar May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, grant us the success, to do to sneer to give the right of the Messenger of Allah and accept and believe him in that which he has brought or already had our stuff through La Jolla. We're a commonly cited Muslim in the Midwest of Pharaoh. Now who who will affordable him repent to Allah for he is the most forgiving, Most Merciful.
wa Salatu was Salam ala Adam and learn Abuja badda Allahumma salli wa sallim wa
barakaatuh see you know, where have you been a Muhammad Ali he will be he a Jemaine
after oftentimes when we hear about Abubakar, radi Allahu anhu. We hear about him within the discussion of leadership
discussion of being an effective leader. And he was, he was Khalifa to a lawsuit in LA. He was the first halifa after all sort of lifestyle Allahu Allahu wa sallam. But what's amazing is that time of leadership was relatively short compared to other leaders. He was a halifa, after the Prophet slaughter, send them died for only two years and a few months.
In the grand scheme of things, that's not a very long period of time. But his achievements and his accomplishments in that short span of time, were numerous and were great.
And were essential to the health and the success and the growth of the Muslim community. At that time. There was a lot of turmoil, there was a lot of unrest, there was a lot of rebellion
in the Muslim community after the passing of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala, and who was effective in bringing stability and calm to the Muslim community in a very short span of time. And that leadership was displayed from the moment are sort of like it's a lot longer and he was sending him a follow up at the moment. Also, like I said, I'm left to this realm of existence that we are in this dunya this worldly life. One of the Sahaba says, The Brightest Day in the city of Medina was the day that sort of La historicism entered it when he came from the migration, the migration by the way.
his companion in that journey was Abu Bakar. No other Sahaba had that honor.
But he says the brightest day in the city of Medina was the de la solo Selim arrived the darkest day we have a gloomy cloudy day today.
Because of the clouds May Allah subhanaw taala bring rain of benefit Allahumma sapia Rama Lama so even if
they said the gloomiest the darkest day the saddest day of Medina was the day that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he passed away
such sadness and depression in golf to the city of Medina that the Sahaba began to act and behave in a way that was in utter confusion. Even the strongest of them in demeanor and in, in in physical strength or model the Allahu taala and who is temper flared? No one shall say that homosassa them died, he couldn't believe that this possibly has happened. And all of this was because of immense love and attachment that they had to Rasulullah
and no one loved him more than a boubakeur. But in the midst of that sadness and calamity, the biggest calamity to follow on the death of our solar system in the midst of that calamity. Abubakar rose as a leader,
and caribou Mohammed and now Mohammed an admit, woman can hear Buddha law in the law, how you lay amount.
He said, If you are worshipping Mohammed, then today Mohammed has passed from this dunya. But if you are truly worshipping Allah, which is what I said, I'm came
to bring you the liberation in submission to Allah alone, then know that Allah is Ever living, he never expires, he never comes to an end.
He said to these words, and these words shook the Sahaba. But it brought about a sense of calm
and an ability to move forward from that calamity and ability to deal with the grief that they were feeling and experiencing at that time.
such strong leadership. But you know, a lot of times when we think of a leader we think of someone who has a loud voice, a deep voice, someone who towers over people, look at all the Allahu tada and who was very thin in stature. Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala and who was so often seen crying. During the days of illness of the prophet SAW Selim, he commanded Abubakar to lead the salah and his own daughter Ayesha came and said, O Messenger of Allah, could you appoint someone else? Abubakar cries so much when he recites or an that the people can barely make out and hear what he has seen? Maybe another Imam would be more beautiful or loud in their voice or, and the prophets I send him said no,
he will be the email.
Because that's not what leadership is about. It's not about strong muscles and allowed voice.
But it's about understanding who Allah is, and who the Messenger of Allah is. Having closeness to them, obedience to them, and dealing with people with gentleness, wisdom, and mercy.
That's what made Abubakar Lila hotel and so
effective leader, a beautiful companion, a lover of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but even higher than that he was someone that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved.
We should aspire to be amongst those that are sort of lahia Solaris alum loves.
If we truly want that, let us give him his rights, Abubakar of Cydia. Every time we hear his name now, let us know that that was because he gave us a pseudo law the right of Satan, to FEMA about he believed, trusted and accepted the Messenger of Allah in that which he relayed.
May Allah subhana wa tada adorn and beautify us with the character of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah unite us with our beloved messenger and his companions in the highest levels of agenda. We ask Allah for the best of this life and the best of the Hereafter, and we ask a lot to protect us from the torment of the hellfire.
